Fears are growing for more than 500,000 people in the Mozambique city of Beira, after a

id agency officials warned that 90% of the area had been “destroyed” by Cyclone Idai.

  The cyclone slammed into the southeast African country as a high-end Category 2 storm with 175 kph (110 mph winds) at midn

ight Thursday, causing widespread devastation, before moving inland into Zimbabwe and Malawi.

  In an address on national radio Monday, Mozambique President Filipe Nyusi warned that while the official death toll

stood at 84, “everything indicates that we can have a record of more than 1,000 dead.”

  Nyusi described seeing “bodies floating” in the water after two rivers broke their banks “wiping out entire vil

lages ” and isolating others. “It’s a real humanitarian disaster of large proportions,” said Nyusi.

  India’s richest man just helped his cash-strapped younger brother avoid months in prison by paying off debts worth tens of millions of dollars.

  The gesture by Mukesh Ambani to bail out his brother, Anil, is the latest twist in a sibling saga that has gripped India’s t

elecommunications industry. A price war started by Mukesh in 2016 nearly put Anil out of business a year later.

  Last month, India’s top court ordered Anil Ambani and his company, Reliance Communications, to pay a 5.5 billion rupe

es ($80 million) debt to Swedish mobile firm Ericsson (ERIC) by Wednesday or face three months in jail.

  By Monday, the deadline was looming and the debt remained unpaid. Then Mukesh Ambani, who’s estimated to be worth more than $50 billion, stepped in.

  Reliance Communications said in a statement late Monday that it had made the paym

ent to Ericsson in full, with Anil Ambani thanking his brother and sister-in-law for their help.

  es that cover industries such as energy, retail and financial services. But their fortunes have gone in vastly different directions since then.

  Mukesh Ambani’s fortune tops $54 billion, while his younger brother has dropped out

of the billionaires club and is now worth only $300 million, according to Bloomberg.

  In his statement on Monday, Anil Ambani said the siblings have now put their differences behind them.

  ”I and my family are grateful we have moved beyond the past, and are deeply grateful and touched with this gesture,” he said.

  The US Securities and Exchange Commission has rejected Elon Musk’s claims that the regulator is unfairly trying to silence him.

  In a filing Monday, the SEC said it was “stunning” that the bi

llionaire business leader had continued to fire off tweets about Tesla without consulting others

at the company despite having agreed to a court-ordered settlement requiring him to do so.

  The filing is the latest salvo in a protracted battle between

the SEC and Musk, who has been outspoken in his criticism of the securities regulator.

  r to settle charges over his controversial tweet in August about his plans to take Tesla private. The settlem

ent stipulated that Musk receive pre-approval for any social media posts containing information that is “material” to Te

sla shareholders. At the time, the electric carmaker said it would establish a board committee to oversee its CEO’s posts.

  But the SEC has since found fault with Musk’s tweeting. In late February, the commissi

on filed a motion asking a federal judge to hold Musk in contempt for violating the terms of the settlement.

  The SEC cited a tweet from February 19 in which Musk said Tesla

would build 500,000 cars in 2019. He then tweeted a clarifying message that Tesla would be build

ing at an annual rate of 500,000 cars by the end of the year, but would actually only make 400,000 cars in 2019.

  Musk fired back last week, arguing that the tweet didn’t contain material information about Tesla, that he diligent

ly tried to follow the court settlement, and that the SEC’s request is a breach of his constitutional right to free speech.

  Pad Air and iPad mini, the company’s first refresh for those products in years.

  Typically Apple (AAPL) creates fanfare around the arrival of new hardware. But this year it wants the focus of its upcoming spring press event to be on

its rumored streaming service. That’s why the company let the world know about its new iPads in a press release.

  The iPad Air comes with a bigger 10.5-inch display (starting at $499), and the iPad mini has

the same 7.9-inch screen (starting at $399). The devices support the Apple Pencil for the first time and

a processor that’s three times faster than the previous models.The iPad mini will mostly serve as an entertainment devi

ce, likely to attract students and teenagers, while the lightweight iPad Air replaces the 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

  The iPads don’t offer any revolutionary experiences and probably won’t move the

needle too much in terms of sales. However, they may appeal to consumers looking to adopt some of the fun

ctionality of a higher-end iPad Pro, according to Ben Stanton, a senior analyst at Canalys.

More than 60 percent of children and teens do not get adequate sleep, which can put their health at risk, according to a repor

t released on Sunday by the Chinese Sleep Research Society, ahead of the World Sleep Day that falls on March 21.

Nearly 63 percent of Chinese youths ages 6 to 17 sleep less than eight hours a day, acco

rding to the report. Among 13- to 17-year-olds the figure is more than 81 percent.

The report was based on a survey at the end of last year and in January. It covered nea

rly 70,000 children and teens ages 6 to 17 across the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.

The report found that the heavy school homework load and the popu

larization of electronic devices were the two top causes for the inadequate sleep. From Mon

day to Thursday, 8.4 percent of the group would still be busy with their homework after 11 pm.

too little use electronic devices such as computer tablets and mobile phones, the survey fou

nd, and youths whose parents use smartphones in front of them are more likely to have less sleep.

Other factors, such as noise and light pollution, contributed to the problem, the report said.

The survey also indicated that good sleep results in higher efficiency in study. Students who sleep longer generally fini

sh homework in two and three hours per day, while those who sleep less require four to six hours.

Gao Xuemei, vice-president of the society, said studies have shown that decreasing sle

eping time for children and teenagers has been a global trend in the past 10 years, but the problem appears to be

worse in East Asia, including China, largely due to a heavier load of school homework.
